Hello again

Well it has been so long since my last update. I will do my best to try to remember everything that happened. 
The kids had fun playing in the snow this past winter. It was nice to have a little bit of snow this year. 

Parker started to like Star Wars instead of princesses.

My friend Katie Thomas came to visit us in Ohio. We got to do lots of fun things with her.

Paige turned 3! We had a princess birthday party. My mom came to visit us too. 

 Steve had a business trip to San Francisco. I got to tag along... and no kids! Steve's mom came and stayed with the kids. Steve had to work during the day so I just got to go site seeing all by myself. It was great.

 For Easter Steve's mom and brother Jordan was still here so we got to celebrate with them. It was so cold outside so the Easter bunny got to hide the eggs downstairs in our basement.

 I tried decorating some new cakes.
 Sarah did this funny walking/crawling.

 We got the kids a Power wheels. They love driving this thing around.
 Then we had Sarah's first birthday. It was just us, but we still had a good time.

 And more recently we went to Kings Island. The kids had a blast.

I have missed a lot more stuff. But hopefully I can find my pictures and get more posted soon.

We were lucky enough to go to Florida for 2 1/2 weeks. We got to go to all of the Disneyworld parks and Universal Studios. It was so much fun and Parker was tall enough to go on most of the rides so we got to take turns going with him. My parents came the second week to have fun with us, which was nice because Steve had to go to a work conference the second week.

Parker got to train to become a Jedi. He even fought Darth Vader. 

Parker got called on stage to help with some animal actors.

We got to see Steve's grandma while we were there. We went to the beach. The water was cold, but that didn't stop the kids.

 Sarah started sitting up by herself.
 Our Christmas picture.
 We made gingerbread houses. Paige just put as much candy on that would fit. Parker was much more into design.

 Christmas outfits from Grandma.
Making snowmen.
Our cookie day.

It was just us for Christmas. It was kind of nice just being our little family for Christmas and making all of our own Christmas traditions, but we still missed family.

 All Paige wanted for Christmas was socks.

 Sarah loved just playing with the wrapping paper.

 And some snow angels.

 New Years day we went sledding with some friends.
